What customers say about Sonix's automated transcription 💘

4.97 rating from 118 reviews
I’m convinced that Sonix at the moment is the best transcription service existing anywhere in the world.
Researched and did trials of at least 12 other services. Chose Sonix because of accuracy and simplicity.
I heard about you from my friend. I found my transcription to be almost exactly what is in the audio file. Love it...continue what you are doing. Sonix is excellent. I appreciate that.
The interface and editor experience were great. I also like the way you handle speaker identification and naming. Pretty slick. Nice timestamp frequency / formatting too.
Was using another software before, but their prices went up. Your prices are better and the transcription seems more accurate. I also like that you automatically take out all of the filler words - um, you know, etc.
I have been a dialogue system researcher for half a decade now. I had build my own app for doing the transcriptions. Sonix was clearly better than what I had. I made the switch!
